A Tahlequah man wanted for multiple counts of felony child molestation is back in Oklahoma.

Roxie Wagers, 71, was returned to Cherokee County from Florida. Police say he was found with $4,000 and a plane ticket to Colombia. Wagers faces nine counts of felony child molestation for the alleged abuse of one child in Tahlequah.

Authorities are investigating the possibility there are more victims. Police say Wagers tried to pay the family of one of the victims $17,000 to keep quiet. He is being held without bond.
